You may not be able to have your cake and eat it too, but Nadine Ghosn can cover hers in gold and diamonds. The jewelry designer has not made any dessert pieces — yet — but her other baubles have worked up the appetites of Beyoncé, Karl Lagerfeld, NIGO, just to name a few.
Before serving up food in the form of flashy rings, earrings, necklaces and the like, Nadine worked with luxury brands including Hermès after majoring in Art and Economics at Stanford University. But she was hungry for more. That’s when she decided she’d try her hand at cooking up jewelry, with zero actual experience, mind you.
It was NIGO’s own Veggie Burger ring — an 18-karat gold, six-stack whopper seasoned with white and champagne diamonds, rubies and yellow sapphires — that whet our own interest to learn more about Nadine. What she makes are conversation starters, or hors d’oeuvres, if you will, and sometimes bite in other ways aside from taking inspiration from food, like the Shut Up earrings Bey wore, for example.
Get a taste of Nadine’s designs and inspirations in our interview above.
